How about this; If you call someone a clown again, I predict, no, I promise...a permaban. Your choice.
Put that in your sig and smoke it.
Oh, and trolls....stay out of this.
Like I said, whatever
You're waiting for the opportunity, I guess it's the power, it really does influence people
I don't recall having an issue with your or any other mod
I realize I bring an emotion to the board that can compromises things, I've accepted that, accepted penalty when dished out, but it's always about the team, always about the spirit of why we are all supposed to be posting here, and me having a problem with many who lash out in the way they do about the team, some make it personal with me, I fight back, but for the most part, I can accept it, and try to restore to obeying the rules
But not this time, you went too far
You went on and banned me in this thread for calling a PATS fan a clown... a friggin clown, during PATS week, when we are ALL supposed to HATE the Pats, and ignored other posters who trolled on your bandwagon and did much worse and did nothing about it
Once upon a time the originator of this board did the VERY same thing ON a PATS site and got banned for it, but loved every bit of it, and was respected for it!!! I'm pretty sure he would approve of this kind of behavior on his own board during the week we play the team.
Now your'e telling me this sort of thing is no longer approved of around here? We can't "mix it up" with Pats fans on the week we play them in an era of our teams where our rivalry is the highest?????
THAT is pathetic
I don't plan on giving you the satisfaction if I can help it
I'm just a Jets fan trying to enjoy my team on a board that was ONCE a great time to enjoy our team
Now it is filled with agenda drive rhetoric, trolls, trolls of rival teams fans and SOJF's who would rather pimp themselves bout how successful they are, how much money they make, how much they pay and contribute to the team, and have a 24x7x365 know-it-all schtick in the process, that is what his board has become.
It's not like I'm some noob, who doesn't have a long history on the board all in the spirit of everything I've just mentioned, but you're going to permaban me because I have a problem with how you handled a situation, while letting so much more and so much worse by others go?
There is a self-proclaimed troll who is NOT a Jets fan who does nothing but ruin the board 24x7x365, enjoys it, and has no problem bragging about it, even after temp ban after temp ban, no permaban for him though
Apparently you are still laboring under the missapprehension that every time you get upset, which is every post that doesnt agree with your viewpoint, you are entitled to dish out personal attacks.
If you think a two day ban is worth all this hand-wringing then you are too involved and need to step back. All of your protagonists have been banned unbanned and rebanned too...
WHether you like it or not, this site is not a homer haven. You are going to read things you dont like and see people posting.... that you hate.
Learn to deal with it.-
Sorry, but that just isn't true
Plenty of threads where I have disagreements, and post accordingly
This one with the Pats fan was purely in the spirit of the week
The biggest problem I have are with the trolls on the board, and those with their personal agendas, or fake handles..
So I get attacked and mocked, but you ban me for calling a Pats fan a clown on a Jets board purely in the spirit of the game this week?
Sorry, I can't accept that, and I shouldn't have to deal with that.
I also take offense that I have a problem with rival fans being here or me having some twisted desire for this site to be just one big circle jerk of homers, far from it, there are plenty of good rival fans that post here that contribute well. The obvious problem I have and many others are the self proclaimed trolls who do nothing BUT troll, and in some cases, ruin the board, one in particular who is an obsessed ******* about it, and lives on this site.
I don't think there is any rule specifically allowing substitutions after incompletions, but with the clock stopped, the officials typically don't hustle to spot the ball as they do when the clock is running.
You've obviously watched the Pats more than me, but it just seems that the logistics don't seem to lend themselves towards hurrying up. Everyone needs to get back to the LOS and the ball needs to be brought back. It seems likely that a defense can get a sub package in before the ball is spotted and snapped.
I'll be interested to see how that works though.
Outside the two minutes in the first half and the five minutes in the second half, the clock only stops until the ref sets the ball. The ref is not supposed to be slow to set the ball to allow the teams to make substitutions unless the offense does it. I have seen at times a ref stand over the ball when he shouldn't, but many times they put the ball down right away and start the clock.
As for getting back to the line of scrimmage, it takes just as long on a short incompletion to get back to line as a short completed pass.
